Carnitas, literally "little meats," is pork shoulder which has been braised for several hours until tender, then shredded and cooked again until crisp, providing you with a flavorful, juicy filling for your tacos.
Heat the oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add the pork and until no longer pink, about 3-5 minutes.
Stir in the seasonings and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 5-7 minutes.
Spoon into warm tortillas or taco shells. Serve with desired toppings.
